Is the Concord Naval Weapons Station (CNWS) closed?
The base is divided into two areas: the Inland Area and the Tidal Area. The Inland Area is located in the northeast section of the City of Concord and contains bunkers and limited administrative and testing facilities. The Tidal Area fronts on Suisun Bay and contains a port and industrial buildings used by the Army as the Military Ocean Terminal Concord (MOTCO). The Inland Area was included on the 2005 Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) list, and the Navy has ceased operations there. Although it is officially closed, the Inland Area will remain under Navy ownership until various Federal regulatory requirements are completed and the property is deemed suitable for transfer. The Tidal Area is not under consideration for closure and remains in operation today, having been transferred from the Navy to the Army.
